AUTOart Lamborghini Espada CDM! [Now with moar engine!]

After HAWolf correctly guessed the car, I figured that I can now do a full Concours D’Modella. I got this car this morning and it is my second AUTOart and by far my best. Also this review is scored on for the estimated price, not the brand.

Accuracy: 9/10

Absolute perfection, almost. Everything is there, however, one badge is missing; the Espada badge on the drivers side. Engine, Lamborghini’s glorious V12, is cast in multiple parts and one can see through to the ground. The wheels have the Lambo badges, but the tires have no brand.

Fit and Finish: 7/10

Wood is perfect, chrome is fantastic and paintwork is flawless. So why only 7/10? The doors are a bit hard to open and the driver’s side Espada badge is missing.

Features: 8/10

It has your basic features: doors, hood, and trunk. But it also has carpet, realistic hinges, and a small metal bar to hold the hood up. No suspension, but that’s to be expected in an AUTOart.

Value: 9/10

It would appear that this model cost $80 shipped. I’d say that’s a very good deal on an otherwise fantastic model. Blue and red cost about $60 more, which, to me, is most definitely not worth the extra coin. I’ve seen it for as low as $65 shipped on eBay, but those are shipped from Japan and can take well over a month to arrive.

Rarity: 7/10

There are only 22 on eBay but almost all of them are B-I-N. In all, they’re not common, but they’re not rare either. Note: the only Lamborghini Espada’s made are the 1/18 AUTOart’s. No other brand has this relatively unknown car.

Total: 40/50

Should you get one? Yes! It really appeals to me for several reasons:

1. I’ve seen one in real life

2. It’s a Lamborghini

3. Its completely obscure

Now for a photo dump:
